Gestures in Time
Architecture Yearbook Graz Styria 2019
Edited by Phineas Harper, Markus Bogensberger, Haus der Architektur.

"In a world of instant push notifications, 24-hour news cycles and endless economic growth, speed is king. Carving out space to draw breath amid the melee has become a precious luxury. In architecture, the patient steady hand of careful craft and creative acts of restoration are growing rare. But what if speed isn’t everything? What if the scenic route is more enchanting than the most direct? What if taking it slowly is sometimes more stimulating than getting it over with quickly?

This book features the winner and another five outstanding projects from the 19th Architecture Prize of the Land Steiermark. They are as engaging and diverse as the region — from a tiny sliver of riverside to one of the most visited Basilicas in the Catholic world. From architects taking their first steps, to those at the very height of their careers. From the Mur valley to nearly a kilometer above sea level. The stories these projects tell describe a different way of doing architecture. They speak of agents of social equity and cultivators of culture and the spirit above economic goals. In a world addicted to speed, the careful gestures in time of Styria’s richest architecture show what is possible when we slow down."
